LEAVING HIS MARK: In K.C., James Dornbrook conducted a Q&A with Donovan, who discussed his career. Donovan said of being hired as NHL Dir of Sales & Marketing in the late '90s, "I got hired at the right time. Things were getting hot, and we did deals they had never seen before. I was there for about three years before the NFL came and hired me. So I got to the NFL. I had finally made it." He said of the biggest lesson from his career, "I was the grinder who would work harder than you to be better than you, and I benefited from that. It's hard to break away from that. My first couple years here, I was that way, too. I felt a need to prove myself to (Chairman Clark Hunt), to the organization and to the city" (K.C. BUSINESS JOURNAL, 8/1 issue).
